Sheffield's Black Spiders have got balls. And they'll have them on full display as they play their final London date at Desertfest 2017.

Formed in 2008 by Pete Spilby (The Spider), Andrew Lister (The Owl), Mark Thomas (The Dark Shark), Si Atkinson (The Tiger) and Adam Irwin (The Fox). Encompassing cheeky humour and occasionally provocative lyrics into their classic rock style, these Steel City rockers are sure to bring the party at Desertfest London. Hook-laden belters such as KISS Tried to Kill Me and Just Like a Woman saw them land support slots with the likes of Airbourne, The Wildhearts and Monster Magnet. They received various acclaim including being named "Best Underground Metal Band" in 2010 in the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. The band's second album, This Savage Land, entered the UK Album Chart and hit #59.

The North is heading South, “taking over this country one finger at a time”; Get your chance to shout "F*ck you Black Spiders," one last time as they pass through Desertfest on their last ride.
